The ZKM is a place of manifold research: Scholars and artists from around the world find unique conditions for realizing their theoretical and practical projects and present these to a broad public.


By way of international collaborative projects with museums, universities and publishers throughout the world, the ZKM is intimately connected with recent developments in the respective fields, and is in a position to set the tone by way of introducing themes which are then taken up and received worldwide.

The spectrum ranges from software and hardware development for artistic applications, the organization of international competitions through to research project competitions in the fields of art history, aesthetics, museology, the history of culture, sociology or the media sciences.
